Arrived mid-afternoon, staff were courteous but, not overly so, and gave the impression that if I chose to stay somewhere else that it would be ok with them. I had reserved a room online, and it was ready when I arrived with no problems, and the Hotel lobby was very nicely decorated for the Holidays.The Hotel is located in a quiet wooded area just off of one of the main roads (Gretna Rd) so there was no noise from the 76 strip. I found there to be ample parking, and the parking lot lighting was very good. I had nothing bad to say about the room other than the tub drained extremely slow. Overall it was a very pleasant experience, and a Hotel that I would stay in again, and recommend to friends and family!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. Upon booking the room, all they had available were double queen beds. I requested a King bed in the "special accommodations" box. When we arrived, unknowingly, we got the King bed. :) Free launder on site. Big breakfast. The staff were super friendly. The rooms were super clean. Great friendly environment. Great prices. Will definitely stay again! Best hotel stay ever.

Decent place at a cheap rate. You could hear people walking in the room above. Bathroom was super cramped. We were satisfied because we didn't expect a Marriott. It was an ok place. However, it is located in a spot that traffic makes it a chore to get back and forth to. It was rated 4.5 stars on hotels.com. It's not, but if you are on a budget go for it

The rooms were clean, quiet and all non smoking. The amenities were nice as well (pool, microwave, fridge, hair dryer and the flat screen tv). Also, liked the fact all the rooms were indoor corridors with an elevator and an updated key entry system. The staff was overall friendly and met any and all of our special requests. Housekeeping did a good job replenishing our towels, bedding, ect. Parking was great and well lit. Some of the things that we felt could use some improvement included the breakfast buffet...it was better than nothing, but pretty bland and the choices were limited and not replenished frequent enough. We also did not like the fact you had to go into a small enclosed area to get your food/drinks , then walk across the main lobby area and in front of the elevator to get to another cramped room to eat. Also,the bathroom was more than awkward in the rooms...good luck shutting the door for privacy and having any room left after doing so. We also noticed the lighting in the shower area was very dim and even though there was a switch on the wall for an exhaust fan, there was no exhaust fan. The upper level also had a musty smell throughout, which we eventually got use to after awhile. Overall, we were pretty pleased with our stay but will diffently comparison shop on our next visit to Branson.

The hotel was a little difficult to find at first (Google Map's fault - it kept directing to a road that no longer exists!) but was well worth it to be off the main strip. The room was super comfy, though our second night we could clearly hear the kids in the room above us running and stomping until late in the night. Again, not the hotel's fault. We had a king room, with the sofa, and it was very comfortable. The only complaint is that the bathroom is TINY. As in, you have to wedge yourself into it to close the door, and if you have kids, expect to get hit with the door while using the toilet (parents, you know just what I mean!) Otherwise, the bed was comfy, very soft linens, they even provide facecloths specifically for ladies to remove their makeup. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The pool was also very clean and well maintained.

The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom (toilet and shower area) was extremely small. So small that you almost have to stand in the tub to shut the door. The room had a fairly large flat screen tv. The location is off the heavy traffic area in Branson so the rooms were quiet at night but you can hear the people on the 2nd floor moving around if you stay on the first floor. Overall it was a good value and I would stay there again.

We had a great stay there. Our plan was to stay there for 3 nights, then get a hotel in Eureka Springs. After our first night, we decided to stay there for our whole trip. We just drove to the other areas. Very clean, comfy beds, nice staff, good breakfast. We will stay there the next time we go to the Branson area!!

""Great value""
04/03/15 jjjgrand Oregon, Ohio
I booked this from Trip Advisor member ratings. Room rate was great. Room was very clean. We had the smallest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel. Staff was nice and helpful. Bedding was also nice. We did run out of toilet paper one morning. I had to run to the office and get a roll. But these things happen. Breakfast, well it was food. Presented nicely. But not so tasty. But for this rate, it was what I expected. Overall, a nice stay for the money. I would recommend this if you’re watching your budget.
Overall Rating
"Very good but could be better."
03/27/15 Sharon R Sand Springs, OK
Most comfortable bed and helpful staff. Linens were soft and I slept really well which is unusual for me in a hotel. Drawbacks were the hotel is simply sitting on a large slab of cement with nothing pretty to look at out any windows. Really, its Branson and beautiful scenery- why place a hotel off the track but not even in any pretty trees or something? Right down the road is the Yellow Rose which overlooks beautiful hills and you can see the sunset. Next time! We always try to book a room with breakfast - service was good but breakfast was only average with nothing fresh but the guys would like it- sausage and biscuits and gravy.
Overall Rating
"Clean room"
11/11/14 Cheryl M Kansas City, Missouri
Found the room and the hotel overall very clean, unlike one I stayed in last June that smelled musty and moldy. The staff were all helpful, and we were given cookies at check-in, which I thought was a nice little touch. The bedding was very comfortable, including the pillows. The toilet and shower are in a very small space, making dressing in the bathroom a bit awkward. The vanity/sink is outside in the room, which makes it more convenient when there is more than one person in the room. Having a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, iron, & ironing board are great conveniences to have in a room. The breakfast was a fairly typical free hotel breakfast, just like many I've had elsewhere. Nothing fabulous, but entirely adequate. The location is also good - close in, but not on the main strip. The area was very quiet and we heard no traffic or other noise from our room, although there were many other guests. Like most of Branson, the hotel is on a hill. The lower part of the parking lot is fairly steep, but the upper is flat and safe for older folks. I appreciated the side door that we could go in from the flat parking lot so that my 84-year-old mother did not have to navigate the slope to the main entrance. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will stay here again myself.

The room was very clean. The breakfast was good and the furnishings of the room were very up to date. Staff bends over backwards to assist. Hotel enjoys quietness of off the beaten path but still very close to Hwy 76 attractions.

This was our first time to stay here and we were not disappointed. The room was clean and looked as though it had been recently updated. The hotel is also well-insulated; we never heard any sounds from adjacent rooms. The bathroom was small and an exhaust fan would have been nice, but it was adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast provided the usual choice of cereals, fruit, yogurt, pastries and juices and we also enjoyed the hot items - eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy. We would definitely stay here again.

"Not Much to Like"

While the rate wasn't bad, the accommodations were. The room was somewhat clean and okay for the price, but the amenities were lousy. The soap was so thin we could barely have one of us shower with it without using it all. The other toiletries included weren't much better. They had a free breakfast each morning but nothing to brag about. We left the hotel hungry each morning and wound up eating breakfast elsewhere afterwards. Also, the pool outside was so small that if anyone else was in it, there wasn't much room for anyone else. We had hoped to do a little swimming but didn't get to do any.

Motel staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very good. Motel was very nice and clean, rooms were very nice. Wish there would have been a vent in bathroom. would stay there again and recommend it also. Location was easy to find and close to attractions.

Not our usual choice of hotels, but have been very impressed. Sandra welcomed us and provided us with lots of information about Branson and short cuts to avoid traffic. Rooms (we had friends in an adjoining room) were attractive and very clean. Staff has been very helpful and friendly and professional. Lots of choices for breakfast. Since this was a semi-business related trip, if we visit Branson again we will definately stay here again.
